I had to speak on it, because its' something that perturbs me. Why is it in the morning you see the same guys on the corner that you see in the evening when you get home? I've heard of holding up the wall in a club but holding down the street corner makes no sense to me. Get A Job! That's what I want to scream out the window as I drive by. Nothing upsets me more than unproductive, young men.
It literally takes the place of a 9 to 5 and sometimes they are out there later than that. And the funniest part is the attempt to court young women who are passing by. Nothing is appealing about a man who can stand on his feet all day, talking about absolutely nothing of value but can't take his butt to school or work. I guess the whole "corner boy" idea came from the times when the older men would sit outside and play their game of dominoes to socialize but those men had lived their lives and were retired.
If you are a corner boy or know of anyone who is a corner boy..get a life. You're scaring the old woman who have to pass you by concerned by the possibility that you may steal their purse. Don't get mad when the cops harass you because its' called loitering, and if that young woman gives you an attitude its because you had the audacity to think you could even have the time of day.
